Australia’s brick industry is worth $2.8 billion and employs over 30,000 Australians.
Think Brick Australia represents Australia’s clay brick and paver manufacturers.
Think Brick inspires brick architecture and building design in all areas of the built environment: commercial, residential and landscape.
Think Brick provides leading research, technical resources and training to ensure clay brick is recognised as a pre-eminent building material by leading architects, developers, builders and property owners.
Bricks have been produced in Australia since the First Fleet arrived and are intrinsically linked with the great Australian dream of owning a home, hence they call property “bricks and mortar.”
We inspire new thinking in building design and architecture. The annual Think Brick’s Awards encourage architects, designers and builders to rethink brick, concrete masonry and roof tiles as contemporary and sustainable design materials.
We offer many technical resources including technical manuals, case studies, general reference guides and research findings.
We invest in research to ensure brick products and construction lead the sustainability debate. Think Brick partners with the University of Newcastle to undertake Australia’s most extensive research on the thermal performance of building materials to help create more energy efficiency buildings.
